Mr. Conklin spends the morning locked in the cafeteria freezer when Miss Brooks unknowingly locks him in. Later, to show Mr. Boynton how "domestic" she is, Connie offers to cook dinner for him on his new stove. (Mrs. Davis immediately gets to work since Connie can't cook.) At Mr. Boynton's, Miss Brooks turns the stove on to heat the meal, not realizing that the appliance hasn't been properly lit. With a kitchen full of gas, Mr. Conklin wanders in looking for his tool kit. With the kitchen light burned out, he lights a match.
Was that a reference to "Howdy Doody"...or some other show?
Funny sitcom and Eve Arden's voice is unforgettable. Whether that's a good thing, I don't know!

Something you dont see every day. Mary Jane Croft using a "real" voice instead of a "comic" voice in the scene with Eve Arden. Nice to see these two old pros throw lines at each other . Part of the Lucy family tree .
